8192. Impressive! That's 3X in 0toX!
A couple of testers achieved 2X in testing phase.
AFAIK you would be the first to achieve a 3X if you can replicate this result in 0toX!

0toX can handle this score, and even higher powers, with a dedicated tile.
Up to 5X (32 768; 2^15), there is a different nicely polished specific dedicated tile; higher than that, a ghosty black tile with a colored border.
We couldn't figure out what the human limit was, so the game engine can handle whatever possible in theory.
I would be rather surprised* to ever see a picture of a 5X (which is in the best looking tiles I designed for this game, a golden star!) on a screen TV.
*(However, considering the amazing skills of NA gamers playing NES games, not too much!)

Cheers!

Edit: correction.

Should have put me on your beta team.
These scores are what I am scoring just killing time. Just imagine what I could do if I was "working" on the game for weeks on end.
I have been known to go all in when I am "working"

Anywho, still waiting patiently....

Um yes, just so people would give me a challange. but that brings up good point. Can I load a saved game, finish the game and then upload to the scoreboard itself?

And you would definitely be welcome in the team!

However, the whole development team was great to work with: Matt, Nathan and Brad, no matter unable to go past 2X (btw: I can't go past X + 9), were the best this game could have as development team. We had extremely good time challanging each other while developing the game. I remember an "Hail to the King baby. Game in progress"  after the first ever 2X, which made me laugh.

Also, to be fair, that was SoleGooseProductions team: I was just the guy in charge for coding the game engine, designing the tiles, and read the team feedback to make sure 100% that the game was working correctly; a lot of further work (and likely further testing) has been done after that without me, this both polish wise and added features wise, and further more, of course, production wise, with these awesome (at least IMO) boxes.

As explained by SGP in the opening post, a lot of people (at least for an homebrew scene) was involved in this project.

So that's definitely SGP property, not mine. I'm just happy that I had my role in this project, and I'm happy when I read that people appreciates the game.

Words cannot even begin to describe how totally awesome all of this looks. I think you've outdone yourself, at least package wise (having played neither game, that is) and it's only your second release. I can only imagine what is next!

Best I ended up with.  (from back during the beta-testing time frame)

Stopped playing after this one due to intense Tetris-effect.
I think I recall Brad's equivalent coming in a few days later with 12976 to my 12975.

Will pick it back up when the cart is finally released
Would like to get into the 3X region (the game goes up to 5X)

I have to beat Nathan's score before I release it, so it could be a while . Gotta earn my spot at number 1 on the high score screen.

Damn... and I thought I was doing pretty decent.

This better be score board compatible

Who needs Score Board when we're doing an old fashioned, post a photo with your high score contest? Details will be coming soon, but the gist is that all paid copies will be sent the same day, and then people will have two weeks or so to get busy playing. Rewards are based on the high tile, and the higher the tile, the fewer available rewards. Shipping, and the cost of the reward, is included in the purchase price, so all you have to do is play, post, and then play again once somebody knocks you out of the runnings. It should be fun; I'm pretty excited.

And the correct answer is still, we all need Score Board!

Well, I guess it's almost time then... Of course, the game would be completely done if I could quit playing it! Final tweaks are in progress, just about ready to get this show on the road.

Ahahahaha, I thought that'd get your attention! I cheated and used save states , so after way too long of playing and my vision going blurry I called it quits. Had to make sure that it went up that high, and that everything was still working properly with the conversion. You're still the record holder I believe. For now...

Final code additions are in progress, then a bit more testing on hardware, and then!... well, you know what happens next.

If anyone wants to check the game out in person, before it is released, 0-to-X will be at MagFest! Come wipe those high scores off of the table and input your own initials, if you can... The LE sales should be starting soon.

Just saw this for the first time today, SGP! Hopefully I didn't miss out on my NA spot from S&R purchase. It doesn't look like you have started selling them yet, but let us NA people know with a PM when you are ready!

Don't worry, you haven't missed it! Memblers has taken care of the last piece of the puzzle, and as soon as I'm back home things will begin rolling out. Look for announcements soon!

Yep, that's still the plan. S&R bidders, down to a certain threshold anyways, will be offered the LE at a fixed price. Messages will start being sent mid-week I do believe, with tile numbers being first come, first serve (cart numbers will be the same as what you received for S&R). You're free to pass and still bid on the remaining copies that go to public auction of course.

The next game will not be done this way, but the support for S&R came at a key time in my life, and this is my small way of saying thanks.

Things are rolling! Offers are being sent out one at a time, so don't panic. Look for the public auction for the remaining copies to begin next Monday, or the first half of the week... somewhere in there anyways.

I still have one copy set aside for trading as well. Always willing to swap with a fellow brewer too!
